I've loved this pen since I was a high school student and I am now a high school counselor!

Its great for color-coded and systematic note taking and it eliminates a pile of pens on my desk. When I'm seeing students, creating my phone log or taking general meeting notes I have a need to mark certain things in different colors. Tasks and general notes in black ink, signatures and follow up tasks in blue ink, high priority notes and tasks are underlined in red ink and completed tasks are checked in green.

It really helps my ADD mind focus on where I am in the multitude of tasks I'm usually performing simultaneously. Without this pen I would have a pile of pens on my desk and in trying to find the right color pen I would just keep adding to the pile. I have a pencil cup on my desk but for some reason that doesn't work for me no matter how accessible or visible the pens are. My writing utensil must be laying on the desk within less than a 3 inch reach. Reaching even 12 inches over to get a pen is a huge disruption to my mental process and I quickly lose my train of thought. All that's missing is an included mechanical pencil and if I also had a retractable multi-colored highlighter I would really be cooking with gasoline!

4-Color BIC ballpoint pens and 4-Color refills are hard to find at most any stationary stores and at Staples stores

Store displays should have a specific section for pens that offer multiple ink colors.

What's missing from the BIC display selection is a BIC 4-Color 3-Pack with fine points AND refills packs with fine points.

Both are necessary for accounting ledger work and final editing mark-ups for manuscripts and engineering drawing and paper work reviews.

The medium points tend to leave a heavy line and a blob of ink at the beginning or end of a line due to accumulated ink around the ball-point.

The fine-point 4-color refills don't seem to have this problem.

bic 4 color retractable ballpoint pen

By BIC 4-COLOR RETRACTABLE BALLPOINT PEN

Comments about BIC ® 4-Color Retractable Ballpoint Pen, 1 mm Medium, Assorted, Blue Barrel, 3/Pack:

I like the idea that it has 4 colors in one - you don't have to carry 4 different pens, won't leak easy to use. Adds color to your work. They are good for taking notes and changing colors for important ides and you don't have to highlight things are you are taking notes for. They write clear, easy to handle. One of my sons is left handed and they make his penmanship easier to read and his hand does not get tired. He does need to use note pads with them, he just changes the color on different subjects.

Convenient for the Price

Comments about BIC ® 4-Color Retractable Ballpoint Pen, 1 mm Medium, Assorted, Blue Barrel, 3/Pack:

Unfortunately, it is the only option at my local Staples store with multiple colors in a single pen. I got 3 pens for around $7-$8. Unfortunately, the ink on the first pen seems like it won't take too long to run out. The plastic also feels cheap. If you are always using it on a very long paced and hectic job, you might want to make sure the clip or pen doesn't break.

Fun addition to workshop

Comments about BIC ® 4-Color Retractable Ballpoint Pen, 1 mm Medium, Assorted, Blue Barrel, 3/Pack:

Participants at a training workshop enjoyed these pens because they were useful in writing points in various colors. Not having to switch out 4 different pen colors saved time and made it easier for them to do the work. They also found the pens to be a fun item, reminiscent of past times.

By Stats

from New Dorp High School

Verified Buyer

Comments about BIC ® 4-Color Retractable Ballpoint Pen, 1 mm Medium, Assorted, Blue Barrel, 3/Pack:

I have been the team statistician for our local high school football team for the past 35 years. I use this pen on the sidelines of the football games when writing the play by play statistics. I will change colors for each team and this makes it so easy when I total the stats. Our school colors are Green & Gold so I always use the Green Ink for our stats and then blue or black for the opposition. The colors are bright and easy to read and the pens always writes smoothly. I have to keep a sharp eye on my pens because they are popular and seem to disappear.
